1. Welcome to my Lomi Lomi massage course!: hi and welcome to my life. I mean, I mean message course. This massage style is one of my favorites, if not my favorite. It's hard to tell. There's something great great styles of message, but lonely limey is completely different from other massage styles on the table, like a normal switch. Relax, ation, as you're about to find out, this message doll is really incredible. They What happens with this message star is it really is this amazing dance and you're using forearms and elbows and it just becomes his amazing rhythmical dads and this weather wise in their spiritually with their massage. And I'm going to show you I've adapted the local army massage to what I consider really some of the best techniques you can use. And I put them together in a structure. So what? I've done the course. The first section, as you're about to find out, is the most important section of the course, and that is all about setting up the room, getting your body weight on your white transfers, but getting everything right before you do the message. Okay? It is the most important part of the course they're going to show you techniques, I'm gonna put it through a portal together. I'll show you how to use your forearms properly. It's such a beautiful style of measures. Lonely Love me, as you're about to find out, is not only great to receive, but it is absolutely one of most wonderful message styles to perform. As I said you, it's plumbing rhythmical. It's completely different. It's just a political form of massage as you're about to find out when I can't wait to take Chu, so let's get started. 2. Forearm technique-vital elements to your massage!: all right now in lonely love me more than any other mass odd star you're going to be using your forearms and your elbows a lot. Okay, So I really need you to get to know your forearms and elbows a lot better. So what we're gonna be doing gonna be using up elbows, And now I really want Instill us into early in the course. Now, any massage style, I'll give you the structure. But then you could once you've got that structure, then you can start, you know, playing with doing different things, more stroked here, less stroke there, or just changing up a little bit. One, once you've got the structure so and lonely like me, like any other man, is not like any other mess. Sergeant Riel dance more than any others. Okay, because you're working and it's just a beautiful side to side or going forward. And you see, it's a teacher through the course, and I really want you to get this really get into the wines. Do is just a real I would say spiritual. I mean, it certainly isn't wise. I'm not saying that it's a rhythmical dance. All right, that flow you know when you get into the zone to get this blow, and that's what you really want. Do so Once I showed this structure, I really want you to just really play with it, really enjoy. And that goes to any massage as well, because there's nothing worse than doing. You know, again, get your structure first, teacher the structure and then what you've got that, then your the world is your oyster, then yet with that structure, then you can play with it, so rather every single like a cookie cutter massage. You don't wanna be doing every one to do force drugs, and then I can do this, and it's boring for you. And if you have regular clients and you're doing them weekly, it's gonna get boring for them cause they're gonna know exactly what's going on. So by adapting during little things, it makes it not only more trouble for your client, but it makes it fun for you. It really livens it up. Just loving this just wave ago is working through. So let's get back to the four of, you know, but so I want you just feel, cause you're going to be playing with forms and elbows, as I say, but just feel so when you kind of doing a bicycle, your elbows much more pointed your liquid on your elbow. So you feel that. So if you need to get more pressure, then you know you bring up the forearm, bring up the hand to make a shot with a sharper angle. Right? So you learn this through the course. But I just want toe plant the seed if you like, right now. So Okay, so put more pressure. I'm working with that cause I've got your trading a really big guy, something on and then likewise the opposite. You have you got someone that's young way or just thinner or something like that? Then you use the angles much, much less and then so it won't be so. It won't be so hard onto the person was more comfortable. So you're doing that? So that's using the elbow. Now we can work that old went through. You can work it now. See that I'm turning my hand now. You could do it with working the old, but with your hand down with your head up. And they all will feel different, so just feel the difference with hand down in a karate chop position and hand up. It's just all very slightly. And likewise, you could do that on the stroke. It's twisting with It's just a twisting of your hand, right? So this is just these lovely things that really make it completely different. That had better. Just was so good. No idea what you're doing. You're just playing with this, just feeling the rhythm. You see, I'm using my body white as you learn as we just do that. That's just with the elbow. But then when you get to the former gets even more interesting because fill this bone here , so get your head in karate chop. But a corporate job feel that burn there, that your own about you could feel it. It's quite a sharp, you know. So this is really good. Once again, if you're trading someone where you need more pressure, because it it all my sex like a blade. Yeah, so with your hand in this karate karate chop position, and that really exposes that bone. So if you would like this part of the forum here, then you can put a lot more pressure. Okay? With your hands like this. Now, just feel. Keep your head on this button here and see what happens when you now, because now your forearm and see what happens now when you turn your hand down. Okay. Nay. On the big, fleshy flex of muscles off the floor up. Okay, so now let's say you're doing someone that couldn't take a much pressure or goes Bonior Areas around the show is that sort of thing. You're not gonna bang into them with your own about. So you're gonna work with your hands down as because it's all big, fleshy forum. Likewise. But your hand is up. This is called pronation. It's called Super Nation of the Head or the Forum. So here again, now you got extension muscles so you could do that. So once again, you can turn your hand around in circles. So I really, really want you to play their encouraging you to do this, because again, like I said, you it's so much more fun for you on the client. So the other thing you could do is bringing your hand when I bring the head About this time that the muscles there on a stretch, right? So you could just working different feeling these differences in the muscles as you. So I do it with the other tube with both for apps really getting the hang of it. Okay, so that's what you want to be practicing. I really want you. It just practices on yourself. Feel the difference. Really Explore that ill bone forum area, hand down, hand up karate chop position, but flexing and extending and likewise doing it because you could measure whatever messaging to working as you see what I do when I come through with working up changing the angle with your hand changes. And it's just so interesting as a safe. But you end the client, and so you get used to doing that. You see, I used my body weight nice wide across the chest. You learn not hunched up like this. So you just get his nice feeling at this beautiful flow and said they want you. You start Teoh, work both sides with your forearms, and it's just so lovely. And I said, You get to a point where you just what you must say once you've learned the basics in the structure. You get to a point where it just becomes such a beautiful dance view and it just becomes so . I was just so lovely to perform and and that's why I love me. Love me to make the biggest difference with, Like, me Love me is we have the massage forms For May is a lot of message bonds here. We're doing two hands, two hands the same time missing lonely Lummi. They use a lot of you over there opposing, so that might be a handling up here. And it is a forearm comes up, you know? So I'm working around the shoulder right as I'm doing this to be like the tummy and the head wrap Italian pet the head thing at times, but it becomes so interesting and so amazing. So that's what I want. You do. Stop practicing feeling that And that will also give you better pal patient skills with your forearm and elbow. So you get to go. Okay. So I could feel that sinking down into the into the muscle belly there. That's where. So because you want to get good sensitivity because you're probably not used to it, it's easy with their hands with a lot more nervous. No pressure. So by doing this more pressure and more practice, you'll be able to get a better understanding of the pressure you need. And oh, just you're about to see. It's such a lovely, lovely thing to do a great message to perform my goodness to receive as well. 3. Why this section is the most important section of the entire course!: All right, so in this section, this is the most important section off the course. So now, if you've done one of my other massage quarters, I have this section repeated in each course. Because you please, you must understand that some people might just buy hot stones course or they might just by the relax ation, just deep tissue. So if you've seen it in the other this section and you've done date tissue and now hot stars, you can skip on to the next section. No problems at all. But for those of you, this is your first message course with me. Please watch this section. There s a city. This is the most important section. And I'll explain why now? This is gonna teach you all about not only your body mechanics and how toe set up the table when 74. But all of the things that it doesn't matter how good your technique is. If you don't get this right, you could be the best message therapies in the world. The person can hate the experience and I'll give you an example. I was in Melbourne, Australia Wonder One Winter's day. I was messaging and there's a message there. Persist up the road. It was a cold, chilly day, so the oak up and get a massage in this person. Now this person might have been an incredible message therapist, but every step along the way made it one of the most horrendous message experiences I've ever had it. And I remember like it was yesterday. It was 20 plus years ago. Now here's what happened, right? So I go there and I look very nice lady and a book, and we got upstairs and it's a wooden building. And members, coach, I'm thinking, are not close your room. This would be wonderful. Maybe should have electric blanket, maybe some heat packs. This is gonna be awesome, you know, just to get out of the chilly air. We get up there. It's a drop D a dropped room. So there's a breeze going through this cold breeze. Melbourne. You know, in wintering breeze cheese. This is not good. So anyway, so he's just gonna get undressed. And I look at the mess as table and there's no head hole. It's just a plane with no head. Hope so. Now I've got a life face down with my head like this copped inside, so I'm not happy about this already. So this is the importance of your table. You gotta have a head hole. But there's so much more that was wrong about this experience. So I get a take all my clothes off that she's extract lie face down on my head here. That's hurting my neck. And she's got this. Just a big tower. This is one sheikh on top of this This table, um and then I've got this small, prickly I don't know whether it was a pack of I don't know what was some low ahead. I think it is like you put a throw rug over your sofa bits along here, and it's prickly and itchy. So I got some already cold. I got goose bumps cause I'm called and put this thing over. It goes, how it just covers, Basically my But here it's about this long. So now I'm cold and prickly. So I'm thinking, I just got it. I want to get out of here. There's nothing underneath my feet, my ankles getting Could you put a pillow a bolster underneath the person? Speak as you learn so I got that. So my feet are hurting my next hurting. I'm cold and I'm prickly and I hate being prickly, right? So then she comes back into the room. There's no music, by the way, none at all. I could live with that. But you know you want have a nice music court. Then she gets this cold oil that she doesn't rub it in my hands, as in her hands of your partner. As you learn, she squads of like, ketchup on a hot dog. All right, she squirts May with this cold oil, and I kid you not from this distance. So it's spraying, so and she's putting a ton off oil, which you'll learn later on, and not to do so. There I am. So I'm car. I'm Brickley, my head. My neck hurts my feet hood. And now I've got a feeling I'm ready to get basted in the oven and this cold oil. She hasn't just got sports goods good, and now it's dripping down my ribs, and it was just so remember she might have been best message. Terrapin, Australia. I am already ready to run, not walk out of this room all right. That's why things think is so important. She was never gonna win me over because a city it was called was itchy. And now I'm itchy and oily and cold, which is no good in a message. So please look at all this and get your your environment right. You're gonna learn about techniques, body mechanics and had to a great message. But if these things are not done correctly, you could be amazing with your techniques. And the person can hate your experience at at worst or best, they just never gonna come in. They're not gonna refer anyone, and they're probably gonna be like may and talking about it 20 plus years later of how horrific and dramatic this Waas. So that is why this section is the most important section of the course. 4. The Table-The 4 most Important things about your Table: Okay, so let's take a look at what you need to do when you're buying a table there. Certain key factors that you need to look at their really important. Because once again, if the person is not comfortable on the table, then it doesn't matter how good your messages. Right? So the first and foremost, the first thing you need to do is to check, and you need to lie down on the table and check the face. Hole is comfortable. Okay. Now, ideally, they think here called base cradles. These are really comfortable and you can adjust them so you can get the president to tip their heads down to get better access to their neck. This is a face hole right here, and they're okay. But a face cradle is way better now, so you need to check the face cradle and make sure that it's got enough petting. Make sure that it's comfortable. Put your head down into it on DSI. What it feels some of these are not. Do not have enough petting, so they will start to press on your you feel your head onto the under the board underneath it, so it's really really uncomfortable. Um, yeah, but yes. Oh, the best case scenario is to get a face credit. Okay, Second best is a face hole. It's poor cousin to towards the face. Crater face credits way better. Okay, You gotta face home, then. That's OK, but make sure that you do not go out and buy a table that has none of these. You just buy a table has no face hole whatsoever. Run. Don't walk. Don't buy it. You don't want your client having on a face table a message table with no face hole. So they've got a lie there as if you imagine lying on your bed face down where heads pushed to the side. It's horribly uncomfortable. And the press is gonna be changing their head from side to side. It's just don't even do it. Don't buy table unless it's got a face hole. All right, So the take away from this is if you get a face cradle, that's best case to know and make sure it's comfortable. You've got to got to try them out. Okay. The next thing is, you see various wits of tables. Now, when it comes to buy a table there generally a standard on a slightly wider one. Get the wider one OK, for a few extra dollars. It you won't be sorry, because if you get big people that you've got just a standard tail standing table with, then there are zombies of slipping up the sides. And again they want beginning the benefits of your message because they here they said direction. The I'm slide off the table again that put their thumbs and make their hips. It's just not a wider table is so, so much better. Okay, so base Crader, get a wider table into the standard and you want to get adjustable. Height is not the end of the world. If it is not, is not an adjustable one. If you're going to have something that's fixed much of the mirror adjustable anyway, so you don't really have to worry about this too much. But if you get one that's not adjustable, then the last thing you wanna do is have one that's too high. So if it's too high food heavy enough, it's too high. So your table should be adjusted to point where when you're standing up and your fist is by your side. You're standing like there you have your fist like this. Let me show you that that is the level off the table when your arms go down my side, where the bottom of the fish there, that's the height of your table. All right, so if it's too high, what happens is then you've got to now create a muscular effort and lift your shoulders to try and work, especially the person's big and you got 10 minutes to high. It'll ruin your shoulders really, really quickly on once. As you learn in the course, now you have to use muscular effort to try and work on a person, which is exactly what we don't want to do. Or I'm gonna be using as your own body, weight and weight transparent as opposed to master ever, which will go all into. Okay, so make sure you so if you do get a fixed one and it's too hard, get those legs chopped off down to a height where it should be. All right, so that your wit, that's the heights of adjustable again. Don't worry if you can't get in a just was launched because really, unless you've got other therapist using the table. Once you got adjusted to the higher you don't need to readjust it. All right? You just really just set it and forget it. Okay, so that's that. All right. Now the other thing, what already looking to is the white, Because there's a very good chance that you're going to start doing trying to make money is you probably be doing home visits. So you're going to take that table put into a car. So if this table is too heavy, that is gonna be you're gonna hurt yourself potentially, because get to plug it in and out of the cop. So really, check that it's a lightweight, strong, lightweight, sturdy with the other thing is, by the way, that it doesn't squeak. I had a table once that I couldn't get rid of right to buy a new table. I couldn't just was the wood or something. The timber between each other. But it's just like doing this. This Yeah, we wouldn't This person quick. Great. So I couldn't find it when you try on the table. If you've got someone with you could try. Just do a bit of your moving of your body on that. So it's you tell you. Tell it. Sturdy on Not squeaky. Now, where was before? I got sidetracked. Wait. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So Okay, so try get lightweight, so you make sure you can pick it up. The last thing you want is make sure spend the extra dollars and get the massage bag. Quite often they come with it. But if not by a message bag for one reason, it will protect your final. Okay, so if you got that on their last year, do is rip the vinyl on the corner of a building or something. So that is really, really important. Also that have a big shoulder strap. So now you're carrying it over your shoulder like you would like a handbag, something bag. And that's way better than having to hold it like a suitcase. It's really uncomfortable, Especially got the wider so they're gonna be taller. You do this. You don't want to be hurting yourself before you even get into the massage. All right, so those are the key factors, really. Try out the face cradle, get wider. If you can make sure it's adjustable and also check the weight on by that bag. These are the key factors to having the table that you need to give great messages. 5. Creams or oils? Here is a rundown of the pros and cons of each: Okay, let's talk about whether you should use massage creams or massage oils and the pros and cons of using each of them. All right, so messy creams. Great. I really love them. You can buy them on Amazon so they're not as oily because obviously, the cream eso they're really great to use and doesn't leave the person feeling so early as well. It's a message craved a really, really nice to use that so you can get them on Amazon. All right. When it comes to oils you can use, you can use go benching gets a baby oil. Use that. No worries. Of course, it's thin synthetic. But for those of you who want to go natural, I wouldn't use olive oil. All right, at an absolute pinch, maybe, but it's too heavy and bloody. And so, you know, I don't think that person's death I'm just talking about, you know, if you're doing it, be a partner at home or something. They had a pinch. You wanted something a back rub or something. Never in the clinic but the most common oils and natural, a sweet Armand oil and grapeseed Sweet Amador is definitely the most popular. It's what I used to use. Now there's a couple factors you really need to factor into that. If you're gonna use natural oils like sweet almond, you've got to have a good washing your good washing equipment. Good laundry equipment because if not, you need to use hot water. You need Teoh no good laundry soap because if not, if that state into those towers and what have you, it will start to smell once they stink, because the oils with residue of the always gets rancid on. Once extinct, you're really going from away. It's so you need hot water so you can go to get these oil down. That's the big problem with natural oils is only a problem if you don't have. You know, if your washing a cold water, you don't have good laundry area. OK, so that's really important. Otherwise, massage creams and a baby oil those sorts of things, they're all great. You have to worry about the washing up so much of that. But that's the real standout thing. If you're gonna use natural, just make sure you got good laundry use Good Lord research, that sort of thing and you have any problems at all 6. How to set up your table correctly for massage: Okay, This lecture, what I want to do is show you how to set up a table, how to put the sheets down the towers down. It's very simple, but I want to show because it's really important you put a sheet down underneath on top of the table and the towers on top if you just put towers directly onto the massage table, what happened, though, slide off and then the person skin on the last thing you want is a person skin on the massage table. All right, so that's why I put a sheet down. Then the towers won't slip. The other thing is, if you get a message or onto your message table onto the face credo, you wanna watch office hot, soapy water because if you don't and that stays on, it hardens the vinyl, and then eventually it will crack. So you always want to keep a message or off the final table. OK, so I'm gonna put a sheet down. I'm gonna show you how to do that. Now I'm just using what regular people percent regular people like people that don't have a spy or anything. I just use it a couple of beach towels. So what we need are either to really big towns or as I'll show just two standard sized towns to put underneath person and then, after a large beats, that puts out the top. If I was in the spire, then I'd be using your the same color bonds. I don't advise you to buy white linen. Don't buy white towns. Begin when they get stained. Yo, you gotta throw him out all right. We always used nice blue ones, but whatever color but nice plain blue was really nice healing color. But for the purposes of just show you because I know a lot of people. Just don't be doing what I'm showing that just got beach towels and what have you for the face cradle? You can use a small hand town, but I prefer to use a pillow case because of pillowcases. Just it's dinner, and it's softer on the face so you can actually go out by proper fresh credit. Disposable ones, those sorts of things, but understood We never do that. I think it's, you know, enough stuff, disposable. So just watching these, but I like a pillow case. That's really nice So I show you this out how to set it up. So we just all you need is a chic between two large towers or two smaller ones in a large one and a pillowcase and a pillow. You're always gonna put a pillow underneath the feet when the person is lying face down. You put that underneath the ankles so it doesn't compress. The air cools. So let me show you what to do. All right. So, as I said, you could just have a bed sheet, any old, bitchy, and you're gonna drink this over the table. I just want a queen size bed sheet. I had a little bit of overkill, but you just tuck it underneath a secret, ties bedsheets Absolutely fine. I took that old in under. So you just put that on that one. Protected, tailored to us. Said to stop the talk of the town from slipping off to just spread that out nicely. Normally, I'd come round, are tucked that under the sheet underneath, and then you want to put a pillow up, guys underneath the ankles. All right. And then, like I said, if you're a spy, you want a nice blue tells I just put out some beach towers because I think lots of people are just gonna have something like that handy. So what? One there? And you want to put a second over your pillow so you're not standing your pillowcases. Or as I said, if you got a really big tail that would fit all the way through but all the way along the you could just use one large, large beach town, all right? And then you got a large tell here, and what I do is just drape it along the side here. Okay? So that way, when the person comes, they were gonna get you. Tell him to get undressed in life, face down, that make it easily pop that over the top of them. Do you see that? I just felt that in thirds. So it's easy for them just to pick it up. Because when you go go out of the room, then you're starting a life face down. And while you go but the title of top and there's a feel like ice and all you do forever has simply pushed down. So is plenty of room down for them to breathe. You don't do anything more difficult that it 7. Some factors that can make a HUGE Difference!: All right, so I want to talk about things that make the message even more special. This could be just for your partner, your friends. Or if you're doing it professionally, you want to mess as professionally. So these little differences really are going to make the experience mawr. Incredible. Okay, so all these little things I talked about what we're told you at the start of the this section was how bad things can feel. But so what I'm doing now is make that experience more, even more special for that person. If you could do that, then they got a rave about you, OK? Even if your partner make this special message is such a lovely gift to be out of gift to someone, so make it special. You really, really want to just, you know, go all out because it's etches in so much memory. So one of the things that's really if you're a cold climate, what we did A spark which would have an electric blanket underneath on top of the table underneath the sheet. So it was really lovely to just don't know. You don't have to hire that person perspiring, but just low So you know, it just feels so good. Person comes into this room on that light out. It's a surprise. Oh, my God, This warm. This is lovely. So having a little single bed electric blanket is just absolutely delightful. If you're in a cold climate, when it is cold, wintry days, it's just you've already won them over just the fact they lie down just so nourishing, so comforting that want the other thing it would do. So I'll set the scene food. So what we're doing? The spot the person would lie down would have them lay down on the table at the talent, and we go out of the room. So they're now already super comfortable with this warm electric blanket on what going always do, which was, Get a heat. Pack your the heat. Petrie. By that, your microwave that these air greater got rice in the more beans and stuff like that, you picked him up cheaply and they're absolutely fantastic. And so what? We do microwave for a minute or so, whatever it takes to get nice and warm. And then when we come back into the room, we delay this over their lower back because the person be laying face down. As you learn throughout the course, we start them face down. So then when we start to work on the feet, which is you again, you'll learn, Reside in the feet. Said They've got all this time with it. Just this beautiful hate pack warming up there something up their masters in the lower back . It just if you got a message service down the road not doing that, you're doing that. You just You're so far. So it's just so much better these little things that you're going to realize that these little things that become big things have become memorable things that the person is gonna really love. So that's one thing I really recommend you do again. Even if it's for your partner, you spoil them, get the heat pack, put it on there. They're just gonna I love you for even more. Three. Other thing. If you're a hot climber, just make sure that you don't have the air conditioner or fan directly pointing on the person, especially the exact You don't want cold air going directly onto the person. That's really important as well. So they think you're a fan. You could be oscillating fan, that sort of thing. But because it can contract the muscles, especially with cold air, you get like, a cold chill. And so you don't want that person as well. So you want the temperature of the room, right? But just not blowing directly onto Okay, so those things here with little things that really do make a big difference. 8. Timing is everything.: All right, let's talk about timing. Okay, So, Tie say timing is everything. Now, when it comes to knowing how long you got for the massage, then you want to don't use your phone. All right? Could you go to pick up your phone or pulling area pocket which major to look at the time to see how much time I've got left? You don't want to be doing that, because one you know, if you gotta figure out your pocket, then you're suddenly doing one hand massage or you're picking up a time or worse, which you learn toe walk away from the person to check, which you don't do. You don't have always contact with you. Learn in the course, Have a have a clock on the wall. Have a small crop. Whatever, but don't use your phone. Three Other problem with using a phone is you said it to silent. You still vibrate, which had this persuaded if someone Cozaar that's got a text message or what have you as distracting the person with the message? Remember, you want to give him the best experience possible, and a vibrating phone on the desk in the room is not going to help the cause. Okay, now, another thing that you don't do when you're doing your message is text someone like one of my therapist did once who? Shore name will remain nameless. She was doing a message. I knew they were doing a message. Another client came with one another massage. Wanted a message with her. So I halfway through, I just sent her a text, which I knew she'd get at the end of the message. How You've got another massage after this one. So of course I just said that it expected, You know, when she finishes the message to get a reply. But I got a reply straight away. Oh, what? She was doing a bit. Why? 10 minute? So she was obviously messaging, gotta find with her, had text, message me back. So I had to have a word with them. Why? We don't do that. And we're still You're not gonna believe this, don't you? Fun. All right, I kid, you know, I was asked to do some message in a five star hotel. Biggest that had complaints. Several complaints from several of the therapists. I mean, there are free therapists, but answering the phone during a massage. I mean, I know. Can you believe it? So fine rings from the inside or something, huh? Hi. Yeah. No, Uh, yeah. Just doing the best. I don't have to call it. Can you believe that? By the way, this they were charging $130 or something for a message, so that would be the last. These just the people that they knew off that it complaints that God knows how long that have been happening. Right? So clock on the wall right now. The other thing is, when you start to get busy with massages, scheduling appointments, here's what I suggest you do. If you're doing it, our massage and then you've got it. Let's say another one. Another person that's gonna come in scheduling 15 to 20 minutes afterwards. Why don't give you arrest will give you time to reset your room. And you know, you don't want to put yourself under stress, but having like 1 11 1 12 1 on one. All right. So you really need Teoh. Just take it easy. Have 15 minutes break between them. Everything is nice and calm. You get time to do that Good time to say goodbye to the person. So that's one reason the other thing is that if you let's say you're working from home on, um, you've got another person coming up after this massage. Well, you don't want them are They arrived 15 minutes early on. They start ringing your door, Bill to tell you they're here for their message. So that's another reason you don't want to be doing that. Okay? So those those things are really important to do it now. The other thing that you might come or you will come into is what to do with the late client. No, this could be a tricky situation. So let's say someone arrives 20 minutes late for their massage. What do you do? Do you give them the full hour? Let's say you've got people coming up after that. You're free. More messages after them. Are you going to give them the person? So then that person licks out to 20 minutes past 20 minutes late. Do you give them the full hour and then make the other clients late? No, you never do that because all the people arriving on time because of one person arriving late. You don't want to have all the other people all upset because of it. So it's a delicate situation. Now, if I didn't have someone straight afterwards, I would always given the full hour. It was the most people apologetic, you know, I'm so sorry, Traffic. You know, you could just give me whatever time to lift that sort of thing. But it really if you don't have something straight afterwards. My advice is you don't make them feel good about that. We apologetic. But if you can give him that full hour because you're no one after that, that's what I recommend you do. It goes on really a long way and then be really, really appreciative. And, of course, you're getting referrals, and this person will be You'll win them over as a client as well. Okay, so now, um, if you do have to you can You do go do have clients afterwards on that person's gonna get 40 minutes. Do you charge for the full hour or do you do you know? Do you charge just outside the 40 45 minutes it's gonna be up to you? I would generally not again. Most people will be on time. This sort of thing. They respect your time. So again, it depends on your situation. If you're in a big spot, then they'll probably charged person because, you know, they're light. You're working for yourself. I would always just charged an average is chosen for the 45 again. They're gonna be really appreciative. Andi, be apologetic again. It just goes a long way. You know, if you could do that, that's my 22 pence worth. Okay, so those are the things, so don't aren't you phone? Don't text on the phone. Don't use your phone you to clock and give yourself time to between treatments that take all the stress out of it and you'll be out of give great treatments to each person. 9. Why I Don't include these things in my massages: all right. I want to go through a couple of things that I personally don't include in my massagers. And the reasons why All right to the first thing is I don't message women's breasts in the massage in message school, we were taught, you know, you don't have permission. Who asked, Did they want the breast massage? In 30 years of massaging? I just think that woman feels more uncomfortable than put it this way. 30 years of messaging, there's no 11 that's gone. You left my breast tell. That's weird. You know, I just think you're someone. Obviously, if someone said, Can you place message? Absolutely. But, you know, I said again, I just think women more uncomfortable. It's not like, rather your focusing on their back and neck. The other thing. I don't do it people's stomachs again. These are just personal things. You could do that. By all means. We're again. We were taught this back in my side school unless someone came in with, you know, constipation, stomach strained muscle strain. Something like that. I just find I want my clients to be drifting off really complete Jell O. So when they're lying on their backs and you look, I was found that you could. They pulled down the tower and then they get it. Could be cool on def. It's women. You pretend across. It gets cumbersome. If you don't know correctly, you to cover up their breast for the tower and that and then it's cool And the stomach I've never really had. I've had no one said to make. Why didn't you do in my stomach? You know, I really love my stuff. Most people I don't think he's getting, maybe you have a different experience. But in all my time 1000 mess, I just, you know, one unless someone specifically asked me, You know, I really like to get my stomach massaged, but that's, you know, really very, very rarely. If I had that, Okay, so that that's what I don't know, obviously with working the chest, that something, working with the upper chest area, this sort of thing by all means not. Just don't pick minor pick Maj up through here. Yes, by all means. I'm about the breast tissue itself. Okay? The other thing I don't do is stretching and their reasons for that as well, you know, like stretching out there. Hamstring. You're saying mass size and they'll get their leg and stretch up the hand string on their bending this and bring this in a relax ation mess. I'm lonely, lonely and relax. I'm once again I want the person to know, not get out of their blissful state and what I mean by that. But you'll find out when people, when you're certain, stretching that, want to help you and it distracts him. But they might be just completely stopped out on then. Oh, you know, getting pulled here help. And they might want to help you as well, rather than just be completely floppy. So get it just takes them out of that. That blissful state. Likewise, you could also, you could actually hurt someone's posterior disc bolts in the neck by doing flexion. You can actually worsen the problem as well. So again picking up the head. If you don't do it correctly, you know it can be cumbersome people. I've heard lots of messages. They I teach people how to pick up the head properly, but I've seen so many messengers they fumble and stumble on your head. So you know, I think tohave that person ghetto have that person and completely blissful, zonked out state with just I don't need to stretch them to mess toe. Loosen up. Okay. They're gonna be so loose on so relaxed from the massage. I want a little distraction as possible. I just go about my work and release them out and that it said that those are the reasons I don't want anyone feeling uncomfortable and stretching. I don't find it all necessary unless they say, if you got an athlete, it's on that wants to get stretched out. But I'm talking about just a full body. Relax, ation type of massage, then I don't do it. 10. Why most therapists don't last and what you SHOULD do instead: All right. Now, I want to talk about using your body weight, your weight transparent as opposed to muscular effort. So there are certain things that we are absolutely not going to do, which you see in massage courses. Or I've future how they're doing it completely wrong, which is burning out massage therapist, shoulders and thumbs speaking thumbs. One of the worst things. Mess, eyes, they're person. It taught I myself. I thought, this is well, is thumbs, small muscles, small joints and all this thumb circling. And we were taught, you know, some working thumb over thumb thumb serving between the shoulder blades and your thumbs just can't take it. They get tired and they'll get injured. I had tendinitis in my thumbs because that's what we had to do. Some work film with you will not see that in my courses in any of my message courses, because it just wrecks these thumb joints. Okay, so we want doing some circling all over the place like this. My goodness, we're gonna be using a bigger muscles and keep that some static, and so would be working it and using the body weight and weight transference. Right. So What is your between Using body weight and weight. Transparent as opposed to muscular effort. Right. Let me come back here. Just going to show you and they don't get up a table and show what? What? I mean, but you see this all time. People will just be statically during the meeting like this. All right, this is all shoulders and arms. We are going to be using body weight transfers, working from side to side or from front from one foot to back foot as we working, and you won't see a lot of movement. The elbows. Okay, We're not gonna be doing this all right again. This is just all armed, And one, you'll get tired too. You probably get injured. Three. It doesn't feel very good. All right, so this So what we'll be doing is keeping either the elbow will probably be. It doesn't matter if it's locked or been slightly, but it's static, and the movement is coming from my body way. Likewise, we're gonna be nice and why you learn this in the course, But I'm going to touch on this now, wide across the shoulder. You don't because I want. I want you to understand this now. So you don't get these bad habits later on, OK? We're gonna keep their shoulders down, General be I see so many therapists doing this up and this is what we talk about the low table. So showed it down and relaxed. We're not all crunched in like this, which is contracting the muscles here wide across the shoulders. OK, get that feeling of elongated when your message pulled up by balloons from your head So it doesn't matter what you do, you're getting the nice question. It will make it so much easier to do the message for you and will feel so much better for the client when receiving it. Okay, so I just think we do it again. I'm going to show you this when we go for the different techniques. But when not working is a way I won't be bending. It's the work is coming through that body, which I'll show you standing up in a second. The other thing is you would be aware of no sharp angles. So we're not having sharp angles of the wrist. Yeah, that will compress your recent really hurt them. OK, so we want to have none of this sort of sharp language were pressed down like this? No, we won't have anguish that straight or very slightly bed that way. You're not gonna hurt the joints as well from that. All right, so we're not going to have lots of little time circles. Forget about that. Nothing had sharp choice. And we're not gonna be doing muscular effort We're not gonna be using. Always must. Horrific. We're gonna be using body weight and weight transfers. Let me show you what that looks like. I'm going to show you the difference between doing right and doing it wrong. All right, So I've got a nice wide stance, and you can see I'm rocking. Most of my wife is on the front foot, but I'm rocking back as you can see the general. So the work is going through the front leg, and there's very little movement in the arms. It's all coming through that weight transfer interference. And again, you gotta just touching on this. Now, you will learn this throughout the course, but just want to plant the seed. So you see that big difference. So I'm just all of that. So There's where your pressure comes from. There's very little muscular effort at all. Now here's what you see. A lot of time, which is no movement and no body weight, transparent. It's just all arms, all shoulders. It's tiring and it feels never near is good. Same with the elbow here. The Forum. It's just wrecking their shoulder like this. So I just did say, I wanted to show you this now his needing said persons crouched over. No, I'm moving in the legs. So it's again, really. It's just all muscular effort Now here's the way you should do it. Nice. What's there to a rock from side to side now? So while we're rocking forward back now, we're rocking from side to side, so you can see there's a massive difference. So I wanted to show that now, because that's what we're gonna do throughout the course. 11. Do no harm: Okay. The old saying, if in doubt, don't What do I mean by that? So you get someone coming along at some stage where you're not sure if you can help them. OK, now, I've seen this time and time again where therapist will try to do something outside of their their knowledge based outside of the level of expertise. The best thing you can do is if you don't know what the problem this person has, You know whether you should be treating my message is generally very, very safe is a modality. It's not like a chiropractic where you could You can really do some damage with messages. You might make someone a little bit sore or something like that at worst. But if you try to do something really outside of your 11 expertise, then you you might stir them up. So you want to refer them on which the climate be really happy with you. Say, look, I'm really not sure about this now. They say, OK, that's fine, but you can refer the moon to someone are awesome. Just eo get getting to ask your doctor. If you don't know whether they should be getting a massage with this particular condition. But really, that's That's the thing you need to know. Don't try for this miracle cure, because if you stir them up, then they're not going to be a happy at all. Okay, so just stick within the knowledge that you have, and if you're not sure, get them to ask for the doctor or get refer the mind to play primary care practitioner, physical, their first osteopaths, chiropractors, someone like that, or even just another massage therapist that has more remedial experience. 12. The Perfect Person to Practice your massage on: So if you're just starting out massage, you want to get feedback, and it's important you get the right feedback from the right person or people, so you start to practice now. So when you going to start the massage? What? I used to always say it was just so that the person please let me know if the pressure is not enough or too much on. But then they define, you know, and so they say up a little bit more pressure. Well, that's a little bit too to date. And so you get good feedback, and the more experience you get, the better you'll be out of a sense pressure young with the depth of pressure. Right now, when it comes to getting feedback, you don't want the person you want a brutally honest person. Okay, this might be a family member. It might be a friend. Selma is not gonna just say Yeah, that was great. Thanks. When it was what? I had a problem to this with a very first start off. Because people obviously want to be polite. But you need Teoh. Make sure the arson you're with the things that I could have done better. What part did you like? What were the best bits? So you really sort of, you know, rather healthy massage. That's a good that's not giving you good. Think back. You want to be more specific in your question, you know? What part did you like the best? Anything you thought, you know, I could have improved on or you didn't like so much. Any strokes he didn't sort of like So you're trying to get much better feedback than just someone. Just say no, That was nice. Here, Thank you. That's polite. That's lovely. But it's not helping you improve. So is a family member or someone something brutally honest that they can give you a good, constructive criticism is what you want because I need that way. Well, you know, because the thing with messages you don't know how it feels, you know you're doing it on someone. But you can't message itself to feel you know what does that feel, Right? So this is really important. Get something, give you good, constructive feedback, and you'll improve in leaps and balance 13. Practise Makes Perfect: Now, one thing you want to do is like any other school you want to practice often. So you want practice on people. One of the best things you can do is start swapping with other massage therapist. Okay? And if not, if you can't stop them, then this is the biggest one of the biggest mistakes that I did as a young massage therapist. I didn't go out and get messages from other massage therapist. I got busy quickly, and I was doing massage. I really, you know, do as I say. Not as I do. I should have been getting there, Sarge. Is the reason it's so important to get massages from someone else is the fact that you can feel what feels good? No. The massage that I teach 10% If that is what I actually learned from my original course, the rest of it is what I picked up from other massage therapist. Your the mass as you go. Man, that was great. It was really good. What are they doing there? I'm gonna include that. Because what you love generally what your clients or love. So it becomes this so potpourri of different techniques and that's what you got to see in the course. These are things that I experienced that I thought, This is going great. I'll add this into my my mess. I sequence all right, so really important for practice, getting like, talked about with feedback and getting getting massage jizz. So if you can swap, then you're not having to pay for them. You swap and get, give each other really good feedback. It's a really important thing, and again, it's going to fast track your, um, your massages. We're going fast right now. How much better you get so much sooner and say That's one of things that I didn't do, which wouldn't may be much better therapist a lot earlier if I'd actually done that. 14. Some Final Points: now they're a couple of things you need to consider which are really important again for giving this personal a blue, a blissful experience. Music. Now I've got a lecture that's got to my favorite music you can get so you can have a listen to those but picking your spine music. His family needs to be a really low background music. You don't want anything that's gonna detract from get the person thinking, Ah, that's in your or something Haven't old download. It should be really Just all of these things are going to help person drift off. Okay, We don't want them in their mind, thinking, I know What's that song from, you know, So you won't have this music that just it's all part of this drifting off. That's what you want for your climb. So having just nice and low and has something has got recommendations, these sorts of things and don't go to you don't like do something of Buddhist chanting something that might drive someone nuts. Someone might like it on this. A good thing when you have your you can ask people if they have different preferences for the music, but if you get some just some nice music like I've got in a later lecture. Then that's absolutely perfect is to use that and listen to those those sorts of those types of music. You can go on YouTube and check out just right in massage music. There's tons of stuff. Relax, ation music, meditation, music. These sorts of things, if you keep that into YouTube, would be great. Another couple things. If you've got a light above you, you don't want that light on with the person's like lying face up, because I'll come over there. This is like when they come face up. So you want to make sure you just lamps that sort of thing. Don't have a strong overhead light because they say once they turned face up, they got this like their face, all right to remember about the air conditioner you don't want blowing on them. Those sorts of things that heated the room. Make sure your room is spotlessly clean as you are so you want. You don't want the person coming in on their off. Put already because you know your towel smell of rancid oils or, you know the broom is not clean. It's got to look spotless. Everything has to look spotless. Okay, It's gotta be clean. And likewise to you. I had a my therapist. Hey. Said terrible body odor. He didn't know he was Young guy trained him up a terrible body odor. I had to see him aside. Hey, look, you know, you can come to work. You've got a You know, it's really embarrassed on um but, you know, I just gently put him aside. Say, Hey, look, set it aside and say, you know, you can't You gotta smell nice and clean. So these little things, as they make a massive difference, is to the experience for your client. Also, you want to dress well as well. Okay, So you wanna look professional? You want a clean professional? Well kept, as is your room as well. So all of these factors that I'm putting putting it in front of you. These are all gonna make this for a standout experience for your client, which will make you wanna be hidden shows about any other massage therapists. And if any of these are up to scratch, then they're going to have an effect. A detrimental effect on your business because life was People will not tell you. It's like generally like in a restaurant. If you don't like the meal and the first gives up, Everything OK? Yeah, sure. Very few people go. Well, you know, for this is that there this most people would just be polite. I don't make a fast, but they won't come back. Message is no different. So if you're not up to scratch it all these things and giving a superb experience for that person from the message from the welcome from the cleanliness of your room well dressed. All of these factors a guy to her get this experience that you want that person to refer on . You want them to keep coming back. You want to win them over your loyal regular customers that I will tell their friends about that. Tell people and they'll be happy to refer you on. So make sure you put all of this. This is why it's so important. That said you the very start of this section because if not, if you fall down, you, they don't they just won't come back. And you'll never know why. More often than not, they just be polite like the restaurant and say thanks very much. And they say, Thanks for us. That was great. But a couple of things out of the room was too cold. Oh, the person squared Oil code oil on their back. Magical. Like a hot dog. Yep. 15. What to consider if you want to do an aromatherapy massage: Okay. Now, as we're talking about oil's what mess are Joe? You might There might come a time where you want to do some aromatherapy massage because this is really lovely, right? You get your essential oils and you can use them on the person at those to your sweet almond oil. Whatever carry oil you're using whatever message or you're using. But you need to know a few things which are really, really important if you are going to stop to use aromatherapy essential oils. Now there are certain essential oils that are contra indicated, meaning you can't use them off for women who are pregnant, nursing mothers and also Children. So in your resource is I've got these notes. So let's say you want to use him essentials. You need to cross check those. Okay, so you're gonna see if they are contraindicated for Children, for nursing mothers on for a pregnant, pregnant. Okay, so that's the first thing I do Check that they're not contra indicated. All right. The next thing you need to do is know your dilution rates because essential oils are incredibly potent. So you need to know how many drops do you put into your sweet Amador. We'll call it Sweet Almond or whether you grapeseed oil or what have you. So the best way to do this? Did you get yourself a dish on what you do? You put in two tablespoons about that big clunking on the microphone to table spurs off Sweet Am Door, which is 30 mills for those, um, metric and one else for you. People in Myanmar, Liberia and United States who was still using imperial system. Okay, said two tablespoons off sweet almond oil, which is 30 minutes, which is one fluid outs. Okay, you could double that up for Taylor Springs, which is two ounces, which is 60 mills. You use around about 30 to 60 mils of essential or sweet almond oil for massages for a full body massage. Somewhere around that, but you get you get used to how much you use, right, So let's just stay with two tablespoons so one floor it out. So what you want to do? Pregnancy Nursing mothers, elderly people who are weak people have known sensitivities to say detergents and centralize that sort of thing. And Children, you want to keep it 1% or less with your essential oils, Right? So what does that mean? That means just show you visually here. So that means two tablespoons of sweet almond oil. It's OK, so if the person is pregnant, Nursing, mother, elderly, knowing sensitivities. Children, you're going to put in six drops, which is six a 626 to 8 drops no more than nine, which is 1% dilution, Right? Okay. For a normal, healthy adults, you double that. Okay, so around 15 18 drops adding maximum into your two tablespoons off street amital. All right, that's a 2% dilution for a full body massage. I've got aromatherapy courses which talk a lot more about you're used to using percentages for certain specific areas, but I'm talking about full body massagers. So what you do 1% dilution, which is around about 6 to 9 drops of your essential oil into your two tablespoons off. So you want food and two tablespoons 30 mils office suite, Armando. Okay. And double that. 15 to 18 drops or so into into that same mouth for normal healthy adults.

A close look at using my forearms: all right, now, I would just want to show you close up. See how I'm using my forearm. Here, look at the right forum of mine. You see how I come down and I push up through my legs? I just want to show you get a good close look of how I'm driving up through my legs. There now. Just changed doing both of them. You see my palms up as I turn her over time not hitting the spine. So when you come up, you want to get that angle. So you're on the muscle belly as you come up and you're lifting up through there. All right, so you're not hitting the ribs and you're not hitting the spine. Now he's just another closer look again. It I just to see the way I've got my hand up and then turn it down. Turn it down through there. You see that? So just working that hip on you can say I just asian the forearm into that muscle belly, and here we go again. So you can see here. Now. I'm using my hand side on. You see, that's not up nor down side. And so now, I'm contacting with the bony part of the owner. So it really is working that we come up through the elbow there. So you're just sink into that. And let's see where I'm leaning back on, pushing back from my front foot there, just dropping my waiting. Okay, so here we go again. You see this? I was dropped my white down, push off from my back foot, going down between the spine and the shoulder blade and try to touch the full of my hand as we go down. Now, you see here because I'm doing big strokes across the back there. I've got my palms down. She is. If I have my palms sideways, the bone would be hitting and contacting the spine, which would be really uncomfortable. All right, so that's so when you do that, stroke your palm to down like I say through the course, and you see this here will push up. See that lift up through using a thighs the whole time. Really? Practice the strokes. Once you've got them down, there will be absolutely fantastically applied 18. The Back: So let's get started. The massage. Now you can see my client was already oiled up just before I feel. And you say the difference between the other massage techniques is that I'm using my four aunts. You can see how you put my hands down. Leader F arrived stroke, but my forearms are also connected. And this is one of the big differences as well with Lumi Lumi, so consider so he wouldn't get straight in with your elbows or anything like that. We're getting getting the person used to my touch. So now I'm gonna go tonight. The hands, but keeping the forums as connected as possible. You see him driving through my legs, my later doing the work for this. Now I'm starting with the back. You could start with the back. You could start with the legs and I encourage you to do whatever you want. Change it up. It's ah, really fun thing to do for you and your client. Okay, So you see how old tonight? Unusual Right for him. Come up between the spine. You see my hands down on my right forearm. So there's no bone owner, bones. Not gonna clunk against the spine. The left hand is in opposition. No. The opposite directions ever gets a torch in through the tissues. As I work down through there, you don't need me to tell you this feels fantastic. So again, just drive through there you push up lifting up through those legs. You see that low down and work my way through. And I just changed. Go the left forearm on the right hand in opposition. See that? See the angle of my arm there and then down the erector spine. I now I'm doing it reasonably fast. You could slow this down as well. You could make it a lot slower if you want to. And as upset if you turning my other relax ation courses a message cause a big party. Um, the slower you go, the more relaxing it is. The fast you go, the more stimulating. Now we're losing both for you. See this? Any working through the rum boys? Levada Skeptically trapezius. Really Just patiently liquefying those tight muscles. Yes, you could slow this down because I'm filming this. You know, I keep a fairly It's a good place. And you could do it at this pace no. Where is it all? No. Okay. You see, this is going to use my hand again. You don't have to blindly showing another technique. So just what I'm doing. They're slowing it down. Getting all these knots between the shoulder raises it right through there and just lean my body weight into that. So this person, my client here used me to stop their lean onto it. Put your head into your forearm. It started. Just feel with the forearm where those knots are. And the more you do it, the more sensitivity you goto have three or four. And she said, I just you asked lady that And again, as I say it, any massage, You know, if you're not sure, the president tell the person at the start of the massage, which is what I do every single time between before message. If any pressure is too much or not enough, please let me know. It's gonna bring the tissues here. It's just a stroke working through there and then figure out you see the circles at the top servers at the bottom. And again, this is all just distracting the client. They can't normal mess on your hands gonna be locked closer together normally. Now everything is right for up coming up. So lift up through that pushed through with your with your feet and legs and thighs My hand is up when I come forward. See that I'm using my left four. I'm going up to the neck and then change. See, I find the right for him. Now I'm using my left for him. You see that I come up and so you're not clunking on the ribs, nor I on the spot. So you see that really nice, usually fleshy part of your forearms. Now they do both for is it hand up? I did hand down. So when you cross the spot and you need to have the forearm of the freshly part of the forum going across so you're not using that the owner bone doesn't contact the spine. It'll take a bit of practice, but it's worth every single second that you start practicing on this now, just doing some nice little works with the buttock region hip bridge in there. See that? Now? My left hand, you'll see, is just contacting the town that way would slide off and now using the bony prominence of the and we got. Now, you see that? I know what I'm doing is basically straightening my arm when I go down there trying to touch that. Think of it like this, trying to touch the floor with your hand. So my arm straightens ago that we'll have another look at this. Just do some circles around the hip on when I take this up. Your sit. Okay, so the day of the Richter, spot it on what you see, my arm straightens right there and then come back up and contact the elbow as you go through. Here we go. Yet. Down it goes. All right, then you just bring that back really lovely. Here we go again. No. After the shoulder. There, a day after the repeated. You could see this. This is losing this person up beautifully. And all the while you remember, you're not bending your lower back. You're bending at the hips. You're keeping yourself wide across the chest. You're not collecting through the chest your night and wide through the chest. And that way you'll be out of do this for years and years and years. You get a better angle of this when I do this on the other, the camera side. What I'm doing here just working down through the muscles on the back of that short of right in the back of the shoulder because of using a four on it just feels so good. And I just just sink forearm and over into those tissues. So we start off the f arrives, we start off for the light of strokes, and now we start to really just sink into the not between the shoulder blades. So you've got the person nice and relaxed. Now you can start just slowing it down, sinking into the tissues. You see, I'm just using the other forearm now on the erector spine. I there on my side message therapist, side of the spine. Now here we go, down through the trapezius between the shoulder but in the spine, on the on the left arm and down hip and the other again Really nice that make push through the legs and lift up. That's all coming from the feet of the legs. You come down, away you go. Push up through there Now you can use a fore arms again across them oversee this. But I dropped the hands down so that I got the fleshy parts. I'm not hitting the spine. And now he's put the arms together either side of the spine and use those forearms on, particularly the old. But, you see, I just moved slightly to the right of men's head so I could get further down the spine. See this Never slight variation. Change the angle at the elbow, so you start to use more of the elbows. Really Not started. Really is. Loosen up the muscles go slow, as you like in this. No complaints from your client. I guarantee you that. So we're just gonna move into this side how you feel lift up for the hip there and down the erector spine and this side now, and I really just dropping my weight into my four on there. You see? A lot of good right down. There we go. You see, I'm just pulling back the shoulder there. You a little bit attraction. Pulling it towards may. So towards the fate is the way Napoleon What that does Just open that up there. They pulled out, go down with the forearm just put a little bit towards the fate, which takes, in other words, taking the shoulder away from the ears is such this was saying before, just work through the back of that shoulder right as well. Drop the arm off the table now, and that'll give you much better access to just work down through that area There. I would absolutely guarantee you get this massage technique down. Your clients will be begging for more. I absolutely guarantee you no better tool than your forearm when it comes to message. And the other thing is, you stand out from other massage therapist that again, I absolutely guarantee you it would be so different to what people used to and not only using your four ounces. See this year's related before Um, but not only using your forearms. You're using them beautifully as rhythmically, and you're getting pressuring as well. And this is what people want. Paper. One. A beautiful pressure, obviously not. Teoh. Call the Goldilocks Zone not too hard, not too soft, definitely not too soft. That's but majority of message surface. A poorly trained do and it's what you get. A lot of times inspires what I call the skin polish, which is actually probably know is more annoying than no message. So we're just we're contacting the muscles would sinking into the tissues on this. The other thing about this massage is it is completely different to what people used to. And that's what's going to stand you out from other message shippers. The message, if they might have the end it, relax, ation, that Swedish, this sort of thing. But when they say But very few people know how to really use their forearms well, and once you get that sensitivity and you get used to it, that's what's gonna make a massive difference. Now he's a really nice straight you see this? My 400 actually on the backs of the sort of the back of the shoulders is she that I go through there alternates and forearms not 19. Another look at the back sequence: Okay, so I just want to show another sequence on the back and you see me putting the oil on. Don't worry about the rounds. Not a bruise there in the middle of the backs. My client there had cupping done in her. So that's what that is not a bruise, Just in case you're wondering. So you see, I'm applying the order the back and putting it on my forearms. And as you can see, we're just really deserves an F garage drug again. It's working through there, and I've just noticed my shirt has a rip in the back of the shoulder there. Sorry about that. Anyway, it's about the massage, so you can see this. Okay. Contacting. I'm working through there. Just getting my forearms down onto the back there. You see that around the hips, Really contacting the whole back. This is really important. Not missing out in this segment. I'm coming up through the next year. Now, once again, we're alternating. Just say there, using my body weight, my shoulders it down, I just rocking from side to side and then go down through the arms there, doing some different strokes that I've done on the other back sequence just so you can see a whole variety of different strokes here. So here the guy. So you see, I taken the arm through their and I'm coming down the other arm on this one. You see this? So coming up on the left hand, you just say I just We do that there. Now I walk away here because you can see here her hair is just getting in the way that strikes. I would normally have done this before, and so I just get little town. So if you get someone's head's in the way like my client here used top a little town and tucked it away, and then you won't have to worry about the hair getting in the way. So again, I just want to show you that because, uh, this is what you want to do. Someone with long here. You took the air out of the way. It gets in the way. You put little town that I can't go back to the massage. You see, this is my palms down as I go through their see the left hand is working opposites of getting torching on those tissues you see how far down I get? I'm really driving through from my legs here. My back is flat. Serious. Push up through those legs there in really serious working through the back of it. Change sides on there. So you see, when I come down, you see my left forearm. The palm is down, so we got the nice, big, fleshy part palms up there. They were turned around on a calm down to get through down through those muscles without having to worry about clunking bone on bone. But the spine there Now we're doing one of age about four hours and cross forearms there, palms down and back. Now that forearms together. And then your little deep pressure and the more and more you do this, the more sensitivity you're going to have a new forearms. You're gonna no pressure. So of course I can. Any massage sequence, you go to ask the person if any pressures too much or not enough, just let me know. Yes. Now it comes down on you can really Now you'll be out to see my legs really working here. I see her coming. Would that right forearm work my way? up the body and now change. Four aren't as we come back down. See that? Now do the left forearm. I always lift up through there as you go through. They're not hitting the ribs or the spine, and now we alternate both forearms. This just feels fantastic as you twist the between the forearms, getting this torch in on the tissues, really ringing the tissues outs. Really, really lovely now just exposed about it a little bit and you can see my left forearm. It's working through the hip originated biotic area on the right, and it's just doing circles up in the upper back there Now here we go. You know what? Right down the erector spinal muscle on and right straight that I tried to touch the floor of your hand. That's the feeling of it. Anyway, as you straighten out your arm there, come back. Nice long stroke. What a way down on the way you go. And as you know, when you're doing forearms, it feels 10 times better than using your hand. It's such a lovely feeling. You see how much area of the back we're covering by using two forearms there, that's your using the hand circles just again for something different. It's a different, a different sensation. And you see, here we go. Now I'm gonna really a slow it down and work between the shoulder blades. You could do this all day for someone that I absolutely love it. And again, as I said you before, the beauty of this is it's so easy as a therapist to using your forearms. You know, working all your thumbs, You're not having problems with your hands. It is just so enjoyable to do this message and a style and so much easier. But you just really just laying your body weight, a little hole in the back of my shirts, annoying me. Now I wish you say that. Yes, you can see down working the back of that shoulder to see this all those muscles And just don't have nice effort. Arise strokes again. Hands together, the forums together, work down and then take it out on this one. Now, we're just gonna have a message sequence from another angle here just to give you another better look at it. So once again, we're implying York. You see, I just used seeing my four under right on the body, completely different to Swedish where you would just using your hands. It's so much not Inigo off to this. The arms here I've started with the arms off the bench to the side. There you see that you can do it. Either way, you can have them by their sides or have them off the table. In this form of message, I actually prefer that. Have them off the table. Um, because it makes it easier when you're doing the forearms from the side. There's you're coming up with the forearms, but you can still do it without them. So it's just see what you prefer. So alternating hands down really just nice drugs here. And then you see, they are my legs really event because you're using your forearm so you might want to raise the table. If you do normal Swedish massage, um, you might want to have the table with a little bit higher cause you're getting down a lot with the forearms. But again, just see how you go. It really is up to you. You certainly give yourself a good thigh workout, that's for sure. Working through that back region. So you really wanna be practicing using your forearms? And the more affair you get with him, the better you become at it. Now this I've slowed a lot. It's a lot slower than the one wave. You see me doing the other back sequence on the mail client so slow, this one right down. So if you're client is tense on duh, they're stressed out and you want to relax them, then you really just slow way down. And as I've said, my other metals quoted, you really cannot go too slow and feel it for yourself. Don't just take my word for this. When someone's working their forearms, you slot right down. One, you'll be able to get more pretty well, you just sink into the tissues more okay, so big, deeper, and it's just so relaxing. So really practice and feel what it's like to slow down. Even if you think it, it's just incredibly slow you much. You know what? Feel it. You'll feel just how lovely is the slower and slower slower. You just slow it right down, and I say it just gets to deeper levels of tissues. So this is all secrets with me working from above the head here. You see how slowed that brought down now and now. I lifted up to the sharper angle, which will be deeper because we're now using the elbows as opposed to the forearm. As we go down further. It feels amazing. They come out. See that? So what I'm doing here? Yes. You can copy my exact sequence in either this or the other back sequence. Um but I'm really just show you. Ah, but this is my sequence, one of my secrets. But as I said, to start of the course, see there different types of stroke to do. Make up your own and make up your own system and say once you've got this, then you play with it on its own. Said you before I want you to play with. I want you to make this your dance is your message. And then just have so much fun with that. Take your head out of it and just go for it. Onda. It will just make it. Ah such a delight for you to do this. The other thing is you like my time s. Of course, there are not that many people doing this form of message go unless you're in Hawaii, I guess. But so you'll also stand out from the crowd. You offer it, for example, In the town that I live in, there's gonna be 30 different massage therapists. Not one is offering low Omilami massage, but may, I guess, makes he's working our way down through those back muscles. Now we get side on, so this is a good angle. You can see me rocking from side to side. You see that? Like I've said before, if you're standing static, you're not doing it correctly in any mess. Eyes style, that is for sure. Relax ations up toward you know you want to be using. You could see my legs, band, body weights into this. It becomes a real workout pushing up through those lakes. See that? That's where we're coming from. All right, so that should give you an idea. Um, another good look at these massage strokes for you. All right, 20. The back of the legs: so OK, you can see her Take the tail off here and we're going to start working the leg. Now. If the person was called, you could have another towel that goes all the way up on their back as well. But and you're gonna see you don't wanna have it on this side because, like, now are gonna work this whole side of the body. So, yes, you could put a towel up on the on the left hand side. But you know, to the spine, if you know what I mean, Educate the woman so you can see here alone. Forearms connecting. I was just working. And you see this Split the heads open. And this is you see, as I worked through here, doing different drugs with forearms, hands, this sort of thing. This is really unique to let me let me, which is one of the things that makes it fantastic. The things that the greatest things about loamy is using the forearms and also these whole body strokes. You won't see these whole body. So you see how I'm going all the way up to shoulder. You won't see these strokes in any other massage for, And this is what this lovey connects the legs to the to the back. Normally, you just do the car for the sweetest mess. Eyes, for example. You just do the car than you do the hamstring than you do the hip. But this is just a wonderful thing that really just takes you out of your mind. A za client, you know, it's like they're just Everything is just flowing. It's connecting. It's a really lovely former bass ARDS, and this is what things are. Really. You don't get a great view from this angle, but I did want to show this side on angle so you could see the whole body. I am going to show you a different angle of this where we do the massage, but you can see how just using four arms elbows has just working through here. He's working the car from needing through the calf here and then just get just getting the four of death middle electoral sided. And then you get a bit of a better angle from this. But what I'm doing here is just doing some needing some circles, both forearms, I just mixing it up and This is the beauty of it. Just mixing up 14 on the next. Heads elbows, Just mix it up and you get more and more confident. And since I'm embracing from the inside of the leg there and using the right forearm and really just milking that calf through there now because this is a massage course, I'm show you a lot of different methods. You there, you do not have to do as many different techniques and, uh, struck that I'm do. You could do more repetitions of the same strike, and I recommend that you do that. If you knew the massage, Uh, just take two or three of the stroke and really just repeat them. Your client is still going to absolutely love it, All right, that I guarantee you, you just need to get to Precious right, get confident, then you can start mixing them up, but definitely wanted this stroke. Definitely gonna start connecting the whole body. This is one of the city of the beauty. Negus says I'm just again. You get a better view of this, but I'm usually the four hour two suits. It puts attraction on the tissues as you spread your your forearms and elbows away from each other. They're just using the knuckles here. What? I gotta fanning struggles. You go up alternating them again. When you do this, your client it can't a trying trying to explain this the best I can. We didn't read exception. Massage your hands and say off the cuff. But the personable yeah, if they haven't switched up everything. Nice car massaging that. This sort of a his thing with the lively lead investor. They can't follow it because one hands well, way one heads the other way. And so it just takes their mind completely. And that's why it's so relaxing because they just can't follow it. You is one head one my four another a section on, uh, really just refuges the brave in a way, which makes us a relaxing because it makes you switch off completely in cities, Always strokes. We go down through here, I'm mixing it up between the hands but keeping the forearms again in my relaxation course, more for us are down onto the tissues again. That's another difference with the lovely lovey is we talked about so really, what you have crossed over the forearms here. See that? I promised. Here's another angle of it. So you see, you just try and keep those for us. You drop your weight down. Keep those for us. Connect the whole body in the first strokes. So your first different strikes, you're going all the way up. Connect the body and mix it up. So then you go back to the leg. But then you're also connect the back again. This against one of those beautiful things with this message. So you see here, I've got my forearm on the inside, bracing the lake and then using my right, right? Right for him is doing most of the work here. The left is really bracing. Now. Change it up, Necessity. As you start, you don't need to keep changing up the four hours, that sort of thing. Get your confidence. And then when you, uh you get better at it, you can do this forearm like Ondo. You mix it up. Just really Just get proficient at it's certain things Now Have a look. The stroke. This is needing, but one heads during the hamstring. One hand is during the calf, normally in a relaxation massage Swedish massage. Both head would be on either the car or the hamstring. There is spit the heads together now, splitting the four hours apart. See this? Poor tortured? All that is beautiful. It works for you coming backwards and forwards stretching out the tissues. So you really see that I have driving through my legs, driving through that back foot to get the power through here and now alternate again once on the calf, once in the head straight, totally unique, changing my hands up, changing my hands down. Now there's a big, fleshy areas so you don't have to worry about Bony prominence is obviously staying off the knee now. Musings for that blade of the owner there. My head's outside on up, really changing up. So the person's getting all of these completely different sensations. One minute. Look up the front of my forearm. London. The back of the Forum. Next minute you're feeling the boat of its just a completely, really is experience. Another hand. So they go. Wow, what's going on here? Four hours Never heads or connected. All again, City is working for answer there, and the better you get with your four hours you're gonna love it. You're really other love just using it for you. See, I'm just usually just turning your head. Doing four on Precious Elber pressed into the foot. Just work. If it, you course, could use your your thumbs if you light as well. The second message Because we used so much for work in this in my course of this, I like to just keep doing the forearms and the elbows And really, you know that Connect that. Yeah. No. 21. The back of the legs on the opposite side: So let's move on to the other leg here. Now, if used right that you see that? No, miss, no. Fast as faras. You know, people get really could get really caught up with draping And, you know, they really making a mess of something that should be so simple. Just roll it across there, keep the person covered, Keeping a very quick little action. You sit in my forearms on the leg here, connecting the whole body, mixing it up. She always working through the legs. You see that? Split those hands open. Now, once we're done, the F barrage, Of course. Now we start to do the forearm crossing over and just working deeper and deeper again. This is what I like. Um, you know what? Let me go back here. Just watching through this as well. Work through here. You really want to make sure that you're good in a good depth? I've talked about this before with skin polish. There's nothing more annoying than having a massage to light. I'm sure you know, if you had a mess, I just to like go for God's sake, get into it now. This is the beauty of using your forearms because they're nice, broad strokes, and it's very easy to put not a nice amount of body weight into them. And give the person, um, you're a date message with very little effort coming from you. That's and again, if person wants deeper, use your elbow so you just just rather than going your forearm, you got to just use your elbow into the tissues, um, and slow it down. So if someone wanted a bit deeper, slow down your strokes city before, um, you want to relax a person a city before on the back routine? I'm going reasonably fast, and there's nothing wrong with that. This is a nice pace. And of course, I pasted up, uh, for the video. You know that, you know, go forever if I do really slow, but so what you want to do, you have. And again, you can mix this up. So did notice. You see, I'm started, go deeper so I slow it down. I dropped my body weight in, and I slow it down to get more depth into the tissues. So when you want to put more pressure like this, you see that I just slowed way down now cause I want now wanna work deeper? Deeper Now, if someone wants even deeper than that, um then you can start using your elbow. So let's just say that person you see that working through there So the person wanted deeper through the hamstrings or that back what have you Then you use your elbows and it's a piece of cake. Do you see? Have slowed right down That's now started to spit those hands street which we work through the muscle tissues again we connected again. Do you see this? This is a real transition stroke. Thats one here it's a transition. Strode as just connects things. It's not one that you gonna put a whole lot of pressure on. It's just a connecting stroke for the whole body. See that? All of your pressure and the day is coming like now from your forearms as you see what I'm doing. It is four hours together and working the car. And you see that now cop and the hamstring. You see that the knuckles they're soft, fierce. We go just all today. The heads were right away. The car right up to the hamstring. Just you tries the whole leg and then brought through the back. It's these beautiful fanning strokes, a lot of city before. If it to be cold in your room, then get another town uncover the other half side of their back. Okay, just like the lake said. That would just keep them warm You could use. I can't remember if I've said it in the course already, but you can use your say very often, uh, lonely, Lonely in Hawaii, where that I just use a sheet. Um, that's fine if it's 100 degrees in the shade. But, uh, that's why I was using a towel here because of it. Cool. We're up in the mountains, so it wasn't cool.

Using the thumbs down through there ringing down through that four on there. Yeah, we use that forum so much because we use ahead so much, especially these days of the computers. They get so, so tired. And now you see what? Just open up the hand again. The hand never gets opened up like this.

But to have them extended out like that, stretch them out really beautiful. Just worked out thumb circles just working down the fingers and thumb. They just connecting it all again. So you see, like we talked about before, you do certain body parts, but then you connect it all again. Used work, the whole Liam again ringing down through there and say a little Shakespeare that he's just another angle. She could get a better look at this. I just take a turn off. They have a good look at this as we go through here. So 400 Muslim Don't be armed there since just using it for him again because you're using a forum on his on his forearm.

The arms on the opposite side: No wonder the other arm here, you see? Just take that right That back there the wear on their spread the old obviously with the when it comes to oil You don't want to use it when I get another month by garages. I hate being oiled up way too much. This just to feel super oily. Some people used way too much oil. Ah, for may, it just takes me out of the enjoying massage zone, if you like. So, yeah, just use a bit of oil put into hand first and then put it on to the body. Never, ever. Person is not a hot dogs nuts. Like squirting ketchup onto the person so you'd never, ever put oil like squirted onto their body. Put into your head first and away you go. You see, I'm just sinking my forearm into here again. My left arm is just holding that hand there so it's stable into the hands spreading apart. There can totally unique toe learn me just working my way up a good pressures. It said.

You can use a set at the inside part of the forum and you can use good pressure again, which just started. Drop that elbow into their into that pick area that we really want to open up the chest. Because we again where the computer old time people texting, always gonna arms forward. So we really want to loosen up those pectoral muscles Nice. Feels great. Just working through the front of that shoulder down through the bicep there, really losing it up, dropping under that forearm, you could see I change. I change my hand position like a city before I encourage you to do this, Really explore the different ways to use your forearm with your hand side on and face down called pro nated or super nated, which is to palm facing towards the sky. It is using the thumbs and really just working through that form and you can sit with these thumbs and just work through the city.

Just drawing my thumbs down each side. Turn the hand over. Oh, neither hands. A real wringing of the hands again. Hands could take plenty of pressure. Now you can see my client here has a ring on. Normally, you'd ask paper to remove their jewelry. Uh, it just like my client here. Um, here is a special significance. He never takes that ring off. So you'll get this from time to time. He was I know, you know. Ah, I never take this off or whatever. So you just have to work around that, uh, it's no big deal. Sometimes that will have we have a special significant. So what would do would show you this from the different angle here again. So as you, as you see, we work through this, you see, exciting an understanding of certain strokes. You seem that the f garage stroke here to start off with, we don't start off with a four hour. Just that we introduce yourselves to the body part. If you like, then like now we just start As we work more and more, we work deeper and deeper. All right, so you don't just go straight in with an elbow or anything like that. That's not gonna be fun. So just to summarize that we start off with a lot of stroke not to like, you know, we don't want to do a skin polishes, I said, but then waste out suffering the tissues, and you can feel the tissue start to gear, and you just work deeper, deeper, as you can see here.

You see how it just bend the knees to drop my weight down, holding the hand at the wrist, just dropping by, white down, that's where the power is. Okay, you drop your weight down. And that's why I said the power it is the power, but also the pressure. So when you drop your weight down like that, you're sinking down into the tissues as opposed to having to force with your, um, what you talked about such a one about using body white as opposed to using muscular effort . It feels a lot better for you. For the client, and it's a lot easier for you. You see how just doing little thumb circles down there, working the hand. I get just connecting it all together.
